I am certified teacher in both Canada and the US, Ontario and New Jersey specifically. I have taught a wide range of grades and subjects, but have spent most of my career in 5-8th grade in both private and public school settings. I also have a background in both Outdoor Education and Youth Ministry.
My teaching style is student-centered, focused on developing motivated, respectful, engaged, and on-task learners. I strongly believe in taking time to set expectations, practice procedures, and develop community in the early days and weeks of the school year. I also firmly believe in reaching all learners and helping all learners reach and maximize their potential. Thus, differentiated instruction plays a critical role in my planning, teaching, and assessing.
Recognized for exceptional classroom management, I have been asked to provide professional development for teachers in this area.
I hold a B.Ed. in Elementary Education with Special Education Part 1. I also have a B.A.H. in Psychology with a minor in Religious Studies. Additionally, I have obtained my Religious Education Certification in both Ontario and New Jersey.
